This comprehensive Understanding treatise can be used as the course text or as a supplement to any insurance law casebook. Insurance Law is designed to make the substance of insurance law accessible to the student and to the general practitioner unfamiliar with the subject. The premise of this book's organization is that insurance law is best understood if its legal principles are arranged according to the various stages in the life of a contract. Part A considers the question "what is insurance law." Part B considers issues germane to the establishment of the contractual relationship between insurer and insured. Part C considers issues relevant to the performance of contractual obligations. Finally, Part D examines a few topics that defy easy categorization, including special problems in group insurance, special issues in automobile insurance, issues in reinsurance, and a new chapter on excess and umbrella coverage.

This edition contains extensive updates, with many new cases relevant for students anxious to acquire practical knowledge that they can quickly put to use when they enter the profession. For example, the Introduction discusses the Kentucky Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Kentucky v. Reinhold, in which a medical bill sharing program constituted insurance. Chapter 5, which discusses liability insurance features an excellent new duty to defend case, Pekin Insurance Co. v. Wilson, decided by the Illinois Supreme Court and 2010, and another new case, Mid-America Bank & Trust Co. v. Commercial Union Insurance Co., which offers a superior illustration of insurers' duty to settle and the bad faith consequences of related misjudgments. Chapter 5 also contains a critical analysis of the tripartite relationship in liability insurance. Chapter 7 on personal insurance contains new discussions of accidental death insurance and stranger-owned life insurance, both of which have been heavily-litigated in the last few years. There are other new cases, of course, they are but snapshots. The notes have also been substantially expanded with new cases and statutes from many states. Finally, this edition welcomes as a co-author Doug Richmond, a nationally-prominent insurance lawyer with long practical experience.
